New Partner - Rovatti Pumps

Davis & Shirtliff is pleased to announce an agreement to establish a new partnership with Rovatti Pompe, a well-respected Italian manufacturer of large capacity pumps suitable for water supply, mining, commercial and agricultural applications. Founded in 1952 by Mr Rovatti, the company is based in the Reggio Emilia region of Italy where it has several factories. Like D&S it is still owned and managed by the second and third family generations and employing 240 people is a good fit with similar values and aspirations.

Rovatti has extensive manufacturing and R&D facilities and the wide product range includes specialised larger capacity borehole pumps, multistage centrifugal pumps, end-suction pumps and waste-water pumps for large flows up to over 31,000m³/hr and motor sizes over 400kW. These pumps fill a big gap in the D&S range which will now enable the company to expand into public utility water supplies and larger scale industrial installations. D&S has extensive and longstanding links with various manufacturers in Italy who characteristically feature high levels of technology and quality and both organisations welcome this new arrangement that has the potential to generate considerable mutual benefit.
